and barton springs [Applause] Ren watched the multicolored Burgundy's diving in and out of the cold water of fire streams like dragonflies that had been hit with the magnifying ray but the beam had only had their luminescent appendages leaving their tiny black bodies to stand as a miniscule link between their expansive glowing means the burgundy species had adopted earth as their new colony in May of twenty thirty two and by 2050 to nearly 25% of the human population had been claimed by a burden humans have yet to decipher where the flying aliens had lived prior to this and the majority of people had stopped caring a decade ago Ren huffed at her current situation why does she get herself into these things she had no intention of doing more than dipping her toes into the frigid pool and even less intentions of taking her cover-up off pond seha and the rest of the burgundy splashed across the surface of the emerald lake gliding with their balloon swings vans glittering in the summer sun wren watched a topless woman being lifted from the waters by her burgundy companion it admired the woman's ample breasts as she bounced to a landing and wrens eye level on the pavement it's so great to see so many pretty birdie I feel so empowered being surrounded by ring would have none of his cliched banter they were just another group of boring flirty somethings that showed up at these burgundy gatherings an attempt to trick themselves with a thinking they were superior to all the unclaimed the whole thing had only succeeded improving to rent that she prefers being home alone with RINs burgundy sailed over to her where she sat with her feet dangling in the pool the woman with a large breast and moved on on after being ignored Wren leans into the mole both in filament sponsee reached out to caress her with it was calmed by the civil fibers Renta easily convinced herself that she did not need emotional support from a human but Ponzi couldn't do the things that Ren was currently imagining doing to the brown skinned Adonis surfing towards her on the wingspan of a massive berkeley for that kind of attention ring would have to move past the message boards your bourbon is huge was the best she could do as the woman's muscular frame began to pass her by smiling at getting RINs attention the woman hopped off the large Burgundy's wings splashing ren as she can fall into the water black braids burst through the surface of the blue spring there was contagious laughter and grin was but you needed to cool off I could tell the woman lifted herself out of the water with toned arms you'll get a funny tan if you keep that thing on she tugged at the strap of Ren's cover-up I won't tan it off Rando into her bag and fished out a large tube of SPF you're serious the dark woman snatched the bottle from Renz hand examined the medical level sunscreen but smart I'm Lily and you Billy handle the bottle back and waited for render reply Ren there hasn't been any scientific evidence about them curing cancer so I'm not going to risk it brisket Ren nodded at Part C and hopefully wasn't another burgundy extremist as you should Lilly gave her a sly smile the Burgundy's are going to magically solve all our problems the way they say I love Satan but they're not puerile my life still sucks the majority of the time they both giggle with this truth yeah Ren would start relax I wish more people in the population we're open to their clan maybe they stopped making such stupid assumptions about how a burgundy affects our lives what's the weirdest thing you've been active since you were what's your bergen is name part see it showed up about two years ago and well rent hesitated this lowly girl was mega cute come on mine was Lily made air quotes a mimic a burros demeanor do you think your burgundy has moved you pass the racial profiling she laughed throwing her thick broke hair around her shoulders I replied obviously not douchebag laughter and ran cold Bert was pulled further into lust through her giggles rent answered a guy actually asked me if the posse could make me come if I was going to marry my burger Billy stop laughing long enough to get rent a you have got to be kidding me look and they both fell over in the light oh my god it's us I didn't even want to hang out with unclaimed anymore I know it's pretentious and completely falling into the stereotype the world was given us but they just don't get anymore and lots of other claims I've met have filled the same way exactly that's why hate these things Lily watched her burger knees circling come on see for a while so you're seriously the only person I've met that I wanted to talk to for longer than like 30 seconds since I've been even Billy Lipps ran straight in the eye without a hint of irony want to go leave you grab some tacos and head back to my place are you a fan of obsidian holy kind of love obsidian I've already watched the third season but I will totally rewatch it Ren was saying the words before she realized it now she had to follow through and actually spend some alone time with the human being the prospect started to make her sweat sweet listen with that really stood up and whistled to Satan come on cutie I'll buy the tiger-lily stop did the food truck parked outside of the pool entrance and got ran to beef tacos and censures for dessert it all seems so easy for her that is started to feel easy to rent follow me but here's my number just in case I don't want you slipping through my fingers with the wink Lily put her and phone to rinse phone and hopped onto her lime-green Vespa the confidence melted over and she kind of suddenly couldn't tell if she wanted to be with Lily or simply be here either way she was already in her car following Lily scooter server-side Potsie curled up in the seat beside her wings wrapped around his tiny body like a glowing burrito of light [Applause]
